Our mentorship program is designed to enhance your personal development, leadership skills and ability to guide people deep into their own transformations. We focus on how personal growth can translate to the ability to cultivate safety, clarity of purpose, fluid intelligence, response flexibility, superior sequencing, voice modulation, presence, energy, and meaningful hands-on adjustments. Learn to lead and how to safely create profound transformative experiences. 

This provides 200 hour graduates with a platform to continue their studies, to get real time teaching experience and to receive immediate and useful feedback for the refinement of your skills. Through this unique and interactive opportunity, you’ll deepen your teaching range and go in-depth with Annette to:

  • Identify and break up your samskaras (patterns)
  • Establish your teaching goals and personal growth trajectory
  • Increase tapas (intensity) and tap into your teaching passions
  • Recognize abhaya (fearlessness) through practical teaching sessions and coaching
  • Clarify your teaching voice
  • Give meaningful adjustments to a student’s awareness through the body and mind
  • Expand your ability to theme, sequence and develop a class through many lenses

You will be encouraged and guided to move away from any self-limiting beliefs while being helped to move toward tackling the obstacles that prevent you from being the best teacher you can be. 

Open to anyone who holds a 200 hour Teacher Training certificate.
